My Attempt In Dressing & Accessorizing Like A Proper Slytherin Woman (Prologue)

So recently I had been watching Meteor Garden years after the hype died down. There was this line that Tentang Jing said about finding something you really like while shopping. "When you find something you really like, better buy it. Because once you go home, you would never be able to buy it again. And you'd regret it."

A co-worker and I decided to buy shoes after a very stressful week at work. It was end of season sale, and besides I have a wedding to attend on the 25th. Of course, a girl needs new shoes.

The wedding invitation says guests should come in their best costumes. We're having Hogwarts robes made (Slytherin, of course - where else?).

Anyhow, here are my spoils. The shoes were marked down to Php800 and the skull chain knuckle clutch was reduced from almost Php900 to Php679.80.

Both items were the last ones on stock. I guess it's meant to be, eh? Will definitely take OOTD pics on the wedding day itself. Hee. XD

I think Narcissa Malfoy would bring this to one of her Death Eaters meetings

Closer look on the chain knuckle detail

Oh! That clutch is screaming Malfoy! :D If you have time, please make a Harry Potter fashion series, e.g. How to Dress Like a Gryffindor, How to Dress Like You're from Beauxbatons... Down to the characters, e.g. How to Dress Like Hermione Granger, etc. :D I'd be interested in seeing your fashion choices for those.
Just an idea. :)

@Jhanz A.

Thanks! That's why when the SA told me that it's the last piece, I didn't even think twice about getting it.

@MigsandAlaine Alejandrino

Exactly! Affordable and they even reduced the price further.

Very Slytherin indeed! True, I could just see the Missus Malfoy carrying that clutch to Death Eater meetings.. or even while shopping at Diagon Alley! ^_^
